THE ARCH BRIDGE AT DAVISVILLE 

By Mildred Gibbons 

One of Wilton's oldest landmarks is the arch bridge in 
Davisville, leading to the home of Mrs. F. Russell Beebe, 
whose family has owned the property since the late 1800's. 

It cannot be determined by this writer when this bridge 
was first erected, but the intricate laying of the stone arch 
indicates the time involved in its construction. 

The farm was first built by Oliver Whiting in the 1700's 
and taken over by his son David, who was born there in 
1810 and who in 1830 married Emma Spalding of Wilton. 
This property was in the town of Temple until 1768, when 
it became a part of Wilton. 

David Whiting took over the farm from his father, and 
two years after purchase the barn burned with one hundred 
and fifty tons of hay. As he had between fifty and seventy- 
five head of cattle and winter was approaching, he secured 
several men who went into the woods to cut trees and 
turned it into lumber, and in one month's time a barn 120 
feet by 40 feet was erected, which is still at this place today, 
although many repairs have been made over the years. 

In April 1867 this farm was purchased by Hillsborough 
County for a County Farm to replace the farm which had 
been burned in Goffstown in 1866. This was used as the 
County Farm for 28 years, and it is believed by this writer 
that the arch bridge must have been built during this time. 

Temple Town History relates that in March 1770 there 
was a vote to allow David Spafford 16 shillings for building 
a bridge over Putnam Brook (the history relates that this 
is also known as Whiting Brook, which runs down to the 
Souhegan River). History also relates that the rate of pay 
per day was "2 pistareens or three shillings" leading this 
writer to believe it must have first been built with logs. The 
stone arch was erected in later years. The Temple History 
also indicates that this was the first bridge in town!

WARRANT FOR ANNUAL TOWN MEETING 
The State of New Hampshire 



To the inhabitants of the Town of Wilton in the County of 
Hillsborough and State of New Hampshire qualified to 
vote in town affairs: 



You are hereby notified to appear at the Town Hall in 
said Wilton on Tuesday, the 5th day of March next, at 9:00 
A.M. to choose all necessary town officers and to vote on 
proposed amendments as to the Zoning Ordinance and Zon- 
ing Map (polls will not close before 6:00 P.M.) and at 7:00 
P.M. on the same day at the Wilton School District Auditor- 
ium adjoining Whiting Park to act upon the following sub- 
jects: 



1. To hear reports of Town Officers, Agents, and Com- 
mittees and to pass any vote relating thereto. 



2. To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Select- 
men to borrow money in anticipation of taxes. 



3. To see what action the Town will take in regard to 
real estate taken over by the Town for non-payment of 
taxes. 



4. To see if the Town will vote to accept the budget as 
prepared by the Budget Committee or make any alterations 
relating thereto. 



5. To see if the Town will authorize the Planning Board 
to review and approve or disapprove site plans for non- 
residential uses, whether or not such development includes 
a sub-division of the sites, in accordance with Chapter 36, 
Section 19A of N.H. R.S.A. 1955, as amended in 1965. 

6. To see if the Town will approve the use of monies

SELECTMEN'S REPORT 

In our report to the citizens of Wilton for 1973, we would 
like to present a short summary of some of the activities 
your Board of Selectmen has been involved in. 

In March, Mrs. Giffin resigned her position as our secre- 
tary. Mrs. Jan Holland was appointed to the position and 
assumed her duties on May 1. Mrs. Holland was appointed 
Tax Collector on July 1. She also serves as the Water 
Works Treasurer. 

Your Board purchased the large dump truck from Ber- 
gevin International Truck Sales in Keene, N. H., and the 4- 
wheel drive, one-ton dump, with plow, from International 
Truck Sales in Manchester, N. H. The new police cruiser 
was purchased from Carlsons Auto Sales in Concord, N. H. 
on State Bid. We also purchased the leased Motor Grader 
from Chadwick-BaRoss of Concord, N. H. It has been a 
real asset to our Highway Department. In the fall we pur- 
chased a good used 6-yard power sander. 

In May Lawrence Gibbons resigned as sexton, and the 
Board voted to have the graves opened by the Town equip- 
ment under the direction of the Highway Agent. 

Also in May the Condominium Development on Carnival 
Hill came on the scene. It has involved a considerable 
amount of your Board's time and effort since, as well as that 
of our Planning Board and the Board of Adjustment. 

In July the Town of Wilton suffered the loss of one of 
its most dedicated Police Officers, with the resignation of 
Arnold Tucker. Arnold had served his community over 15 
years as a special officer, and the last 3 years as regular 
officer. Your Board felt a sincere loss with his departure. 

The community suffered another loss upon the sudden 
death of Richard R. Turtle, Sr., a long time member of our 
Budget Committee, as well as many other Town Commit- 
tees. 

Your Board of Selectmen attended many meetings on a 
Statewide level regarding mutual local problems. We feel 



11 



these meetings have been very useful in assisting us to 
better administer the affairs of your town. 

The Municipal Court has been moved to the old Banquet 
Room area following renovations. Many other Town Com- 
mittees will also conduct their meetings in this room. 

We would like to thank all of our citizens who helped 
our Board in any manner during the past year.

WILTON HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT REPORT 

Winter Maintenance 

Winter expenses during 1973 were not excessive due to the 
small amount of snowfall. Total accumulation for the year 
was 52 inches. The largest portion of our snow came during 
the months of January and February. March was fairly mild 
with some periods of rainy, blustery weather. The final 
snow fall came on April 4th which was the usual spring 
storm consisting of five inches of heavy, wet snow. 

The last quarter of the year was a continuation of the 
mild winter weather. There were no storms during Novem- 
ber, and bad weather did not begin until December 9th. 
The remaining weeks of December brought six more storms 
with total accumulation of six inches of snow. Snow totals 
for the year were low, however, there was no lack of per- 
cipitation. The eight remaining storms brought rain, freez- 
ing rain, and large amounts of ice which caused treacherous 
driving conditions. The department was better equipped to 
handle these ice storms, due to the purchase of a used power 
sander which gives the highway department two such units 
for winter and summer use. 

The road grader purchased at the March town meeting 
was very effective in keeping the ice from building up on 
the road surface. 

More sand was applied to road surfaces this winter at less 
cost due to the purchase of the material from a local land- 
owner. Utilization of the readily available sand supply, 
thereby reducing the need for purchasing large amounts of 
salt that had been used in the past. More sand-salt mix was 
used especially on roads where the traffic is light. 

Summer Maintenance 

Summer projects this year included extensive work related 
to improving the drainage of surface water from the roads. 
The grader was kept busy cleaning ditches and maintaining 
gravel roads. Many of there gravel roads received a new 

49 



layer of gravel which was processed for use by a portable 
crushing plant hired during the summer. Improving the 
surface of these roads will make maintenance easier and 
also improve spring conditions. 

A major portion of labor hours were spent replacing cul- 
verts and repairing catch basins in several areas of town. 
Most of this work w T as done to roads and streets where re- 
surfacing was anticipated, after the surface water problems 
had been alleviated. An extensive amount of this work was 
done on Highland Street, Pead Hill, and Pine Valley Street. 
Additionally, a large 30 inch pipe was installed in Hardv 
Brook to help support Whiting Hill Road from collapsing 
onto the Shaw property. 

More of this drainage work should be done in the Davis- 
ville, Abbot Hill, Wilton Center, and West Wilton areas. 
Surface conditions have been deteriorating because of year 
round water saturation. 

T.R.A. monies were used to complete the final section of 
the Curtis Farm Road. Work consisted of placing a coarse 
gravel base, top layer of crushed gravel (which was also pro- 
duced by the hired crusher). Useage of our own crushed 
gravel lowered the cost of this phase of the project. The 
surface was then applied in two coats of liquid asphalt, 
later in the fall a third sealing coat was applied. 

Our summer maintenance season was extended later into 
the fall than usual. Extra maintenance work with the grader 
was necessary due to washouts of roads and ditches filling 
with excessive amounts of sand, caused by the heavy rains. 

In addition to the usual maintenance duties this vear, the 
highway department was required to open graves in the 
town's cemeteries. This added responsibility was handled 
without problems and the backhoe was used to excavate for 
the first time, as in the past Mr. Gibbons had accomplished 
this task using hand tools. 

Resurfacing 

Resurfacing this year was handled differentlv than had 

50 



been normally done in the past. Hot mixed material to 
smooth and re-crown some of the roads was done before the 
usual sealing. The road grader was used to place the hot 
top material in layers on the road surface where needed. 
This process seems to be a practical way of making our roads 
smoother. After the hot top was compacted and rolled cool, 
a coat of liquid asphalt sealed the entire road surface. 

Using the new sander (along with the first unit the town 
purchased) for covering this sealing coat with sand made it 
possible to cover more miles of road this year. These power 
sanding units reduce labor costs tremendously and less 
sand material is required for a more efficient job. 

Streets tarred this year include: Crescent, Russell, Put- 
nam, Pine Valley, Gregg, Livermore, Tremont, Prince, Pleas- 
ant, Highland, also the following roads; Draper, Whiting 
Hill, Curtis Farm, Intervale, Captain Clark, Potter, Mason, 
and the Isaac Frye Highway in Wilton Center. The total 
mileage tarred was approximately 11 miles. No private work 
was done while resurfacing except for the playground at the 
Elementary School. Eliminating private tarring allowed 
more miles of road to be tarred, which, in time, will result 
in an overall improvement of all tar roads. 

The purchase of sand used this year from local landowners 
rather than processed sand, enabled the department to real- 
ize savings. These savings were used to purchase larger 
amounts of hot top and asphalt. 

Dump 

Conditions at the dump have been improved this year 
with the termination of burning. The area is getting smaller 
each year and this requires more maintenance with the pay- 
loader. A land-fill should be maintained by a track machine 
as opposed to rubber tires, and the purchase of such a ma- 
chine should be considered in the future. This type of ma- 
chine would help to utilize the current space we have more 
efficiently. A considerable amount of money was required 
to convert the dump to a land-fill type of dump as opposed 

51 



to open burning. In order to offset the cost of this conver- 
sion, marketable timber was sold to a local lumber company. 

Town equipment is used to cover the dump, and the ma- 
terial used to cover is being excavated from the lower level 
of the land. The amount of material available to cover is 
not going to be adequate for more than a year or two. This 
will require that the cover material be purchased elsewhere 
and trucked to the site. This will increase the operating 
cost, and require more equipment time to bury the refuse. 

A caretaker is employed full time to minimize the poss- 
ibility of any fires being started, and seeing that the refuse is 
kept as close to the edge of the dump as possible to keep 
damage to the tires of the payloader to a minimum. 

Town officials have attended meetings relating to the in- 
creasing amounts of refuse and how to cope with this prob- 
lem. Various suggestions have been presented, but no de- 
cisions as to what type of action will be taken have been 
made. 

The department has accomplished much of the previouslv 
mentioned work, due to the new trucks and road grader 
purchased at the town meeting last March. This year, one 
new dump truck equipped with snowplow is being request- 
ed to replace the 1961 Reo truck. This replacement will 
complete the updating of our equipment to better maintain 
our roads. 

I would like to thank all residents and town officials who 
have aided me during this past year. In addition, I especial- 
ly wish to thank Clayton Brown and Robert Hadley for their 
loyal support this year, along with my part-time employees. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES A. TUTTLE, Road Agent

REPORT OF THE 
WILTON POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR 1973 

The criminal activities over the past year have become 
more frequent within the community. Again a great num- 
ber of successful arrests and convictions have been due to 
observations and reports bv residents of Wilton. Without 
the watchfulness of the citizenry, any police department, 
not just Wilton's, would be lost. The officers of this depart- 
ment hope the citizens will remain as watchful and alert 
throughout the ensuing vear. 

In May of last year this department requested the assist- 
ance of the narcotics undercover unit of the Xew Hampshire 
State Police. Through the efforts of the two departments, 
the month of December yielded 8 indictments before the 
Hillsborough County Grand Jury, on charges of Sale of 
Controlled Drugs. All of the sales did not take place in 
Wilton, but a major portion of them originated within the 
town. These indictments will not eliminate the drug prob- 
lem in Wilton, but it has put a deterrent in its operations. 

I wish to thank the officers of this department for their 
efforts in providing the community with full 24-hour serv- 
ice, and for providing that service to the best of their ability. 

Respectfullv submitted, 
GEORGE T. GAZEY 
Chief of Police

REPORT OF THE WILTON FIRE DEPARTMENT 

In 1973 we had a total of 64 alarms. This is a slight in- 
crease over the previous year. We had one serious dwelling 
fire which did in excess of $50,000.00 in damage. 

We anticipate more chimney and dwelling fires next year 
due to the energy crisis. Unless people become more cau- 
tious when they install additional heating devices and 
adhere to the safety codes, I feel that this will bring addi- 
tional problems. 

I sincerely want to thank everyone who has assisted the 
Fire Department in carrying out our duties in the past year. 

I also wish to thank my deputies and the men of the 
Wilton Fire Department for their cooperation and dedica- 
tion. 

Respectfully submitted, 
GILBERT E. TESTA, Chief

REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND DISTRICT CHIEF 

The New Hampshire Forest Fire Service is represented in 
every town, city or unorganized place in our state by the 
forest fire warden. Anyone wishing to kindle an outside 
fire when the ground is not covered with snow must first 
obtain the written permission of the fire warden. Except 
for cooking fires, no fire can be kindled between 9:00 a.m. 
and 5:00 p.m. unless it is a commercial or industrial burn, 
or it is raining. The fire warden is assisted in his work by 
the District Forest Fire Chief, who works for the Depart- 
ment of Resources and Economic Development Forest Fire 
Service. 

Fire prevention was, again this year, the most important 
part of the Forest Fire Warden's job. Fire statistics show 
the need, with 72% of the fires caused by smoking, debris 
burning and children. Smokey the Bear is an important 
prevention tool, but he still needs much help from the pub- 
lic. Parents should warn their children of the hazards of 
playing with matches. Children tend to forget that a lighted 
match held in their hand is a potential forest fire.

WATER WORKS 

In an effort to improve the water quality in Wilton, the 
Water Works Department has had the reservoir drained and 
cleaned completelv. New screens were built and batter 
boards have been replaced with new ones. Also, several 
beaver dams were eliminated from the Countv Farm Brook 
by the State Fish and Game Department. The screens in the 
new reservoir were replaced in the middle of the summer bv 
skin divers, and the brush along the edge of the reservoir 
was cut. 

Water samples have been sent to the state once a month 
and the chlorinator has been inspected monthlv bv the State 
Water Supplv and Pollution Control Commission. All re- 
ports have been satisfactory. 

Along with the November billing we sent a questionnaire 
asking if users would prefer an annual billing to the present 
semi-annual billing. The replv was exceptionallv high and 
it was overwhelminglv in favor of an annual billing. The 
May 1974 billing will be for the entire year and we will ex- 
tend the pavment period from 90 davs to 120 days. 

This year there has been one major water line extension of 
approximatelv 500 feet and one additional hvdrant added to 
Abbott Hill Acres. There was the usual amount of sen- ice 
pipe replaced and several water main breaks repaired. For 
their cooperation in finishing this work with a minimum cost 
to the town, we wish to thank the Highwav Department.

REPORT OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 

The past year has resulted in various problems for the 
town sewer system, some minor, some major. We have had 
minor stoppages in certain sections, which were corrected 
quickly, and one major obstruction on Forest Street, where- 
in outside services had to be contracted to correct the prob- 
lem. 

Hopefully, the ensuing year will be as trouble free, and 
should be, if caution is taken by the user in regards to their 
disposals, this being the direct reason for the problems in- 
curred. 

In reference to the town's status of advancement of a 
sewage treatment system, we inform you that the commis- 
sion is working as advised by the N.H. Water Pollution 
Agency and that the town is proceeding slowly in the direc- 
tion required to meet environmental and legal commitments.

WILTON YOUTH CENTER COMMITTEE 

Annual Report - 1973 

Goss Park had a most successful year under the direction 
of Miss Marcia Turtle and her staff. 

Several major improvements were accomplished with 
funds from the Reserve Fund. There is a wider road and 
entrance to the park, a new gate, and the dock was re- 
inforced. 

The number of children participating in the lessons rose 
from 240 in 1972 to 270. Of these, 203 were from Wilton 
and 63 from Lyndeboro. The summer was filled with many 
warm days, and the pool was enjoyed by many townspeople. 

The Pop Warner Football Team utilized the field at Goss 
Park for practice during the summer and their games until 
late fall. 

A flagpole was installed near the field and dedicated with 
a flag flown over the Capitol and sent by James C. Cleve- 
land, 2nd District, New Hampshire, and presented by the 
Harley-Sanford Post No. 4368 of the Veterans of Foreign 
Wars. 

During the winter 60 children registered for skating 
lessons provided by Miss Karen Lane on Saturday morning. 
Thanks go to Fire Chief Testa and the Fire Department for 
maintaining and grooming the rink offered by Abbott In- 
dustries. 

The Youth Center Committee appreciates the $1,265 con- 
tributed by the Townspeople and volunteers who help make 
this a successful program. 

As chairman, I wish to thank all members of the Youth 
Center Committee who have volunteered their time and 
effort toward this recreational activity for the towns. 

Respectfully submitted, 

DONNA MAE HOOVER, Chairman, 1974

AUDITORS' REPORT 

We have completed our audit of the accounts of town 
officers for the year ending December 31, 1973. 

The records of the Tax Collector, Treasurer, Town 
Clerk, Trustees of the Trust Fund, Selectmen, Water De- 
partment, Wilton Public Library and Clerk of the Muni- 
cipal Court were checked and after minor corrections 
found to be in order. Town officers' bonds were checked 
and found to be in order. Uncollected accounts of the 
Tax Collector were verified by sending notices to debtors. 

We wish to thank the town officers for their cooperation 
received during the audit, and our many thanks to Jan 
Holland for the help she so cheerfully gave us.

Wilton School District 
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Carl E. Bowers 

Since my last report, we have had several changes in our 
staff. Mrs. Gertrude Stanton, who taught Physical Educa- 
tion for many years, retired mid-year due to ill health. 
Those who were in Mrs. Stanton's classes and under her 
coaching leadership shall long remember her active years 
for her interest and guidance. Mrs. Elizabeth Collins fin- 
ished the year in this position, and Miss Margaret Rad- 
ziewicz was hired to teach Physical Education for 1973-74. 
Mrs. Pamela Ritch, who taught Art, resigned, and Mrs. 
Karolyn Haight was hired for the position. Mrs. Luise Des- 
rosiers, who taught grade one for several years, retired at 
the close of the year, ending a very successful teaching 
career. Mrs. Helen Emma was employed to teach grade 
one. Mrs. Wendy Carlton resigned to take a position over- 
seas, and we were very fortunate to have Mrs. Elizabeth 
Robbins return after a year's leave of absence to teach 
grade four. 

Mr. John Guilfoyle resigned as Head Custodian, and Mr. 
John Enderle is presently serving in that position. Mr. John 
Guilfoyle and Mr. Donald McGettigan are assistant custo- 
dians working part-time. We are very fortunate in having 
the services of these gentlemen. 

We have continued with our long range maintenance 
schedule, and the following projects have been completed 
or are in the process of completion. 

The Gymnasium has been vastly improved in appearance 
by having the ceiling and walls painted, new stage curtains 
and a cyclorama installed, and the window draperies re- 
paired and rehung on commercial type fixtures. 

The slate shingles on the roof of the original building, 
that once served as Wilton High School, were replaced 
where necessary, and the flat section tarred and sealed. 

21 



A great deal of work has been done on the old boiler, as 
well as replacing radiator thermostats where necessary. 

New panic hardware has been placed on three doors, 
thus making it much easier for the students to open and 
close the doors. 

As a security measure we have started a key control pro- 
gram, and hope to continue this next year. The new secur- 
ity lighting that was completed just a few weeks ago, was 
just another measure being taken to protect the investment 
we have in our schools. 

A two or three foot border around the building was re- 
surfaced with hot-top, and the play area was sealed this 
past summer. The Wilton Highway Department received 
the bid for sealing the play area, and it saved an appreciable 
amount of expenditure. 

Our transportation needs are now being served by the 
Munro Bus Company. Three new buses are being used with 
call radios in each. 

Work has been started in the area of school policies and 
procedures. This means up-dating previous policies and 
drawing up job descriptions for the various personnel. 

As I conclude this report I would like to thank the School 
Board, Staff, and all Citizens of the District for their assist- 
ance and splendid cooperation.

Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School District 
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Carl E. Bowers 



Three years have past since we moved into our new 
school and much progress has been made. 

Our Staff has increased as well as our enrollments; how- 
ever, the teacher turnover has been minor, even though we 
have had several changes. Mrs. Frances McCaffery, who 
served as our Librarian and Resource Center Director, re- 
signed due to a move to Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and 
Miss Margaret Townsend was hired to fill this position. Mrs. 
Brenda Lagergren replaces Mrs. Ann Marie Irwin, who has 
accepted a position in the Con-Val School District. Miss 
Shelly Amos is an additional member in our Social Studies 
Department, and is also teaching English. Mr. Christopher 
Panic is teaching Social Studies replacing Mr. Charles Mou- 
dry, who resigned. Mrs. Elizabeth Collins replaces Miss 
Janice Progen, who resigned to further her education. 

We have been provided with an excellent facility and 
now we must continuously work together to provide the best 
in a program of studies for our children. Ever since our 
move into our new building, we have been continuallv 
working on the Curriculum. We have added our library col- 
lection and purchased additional equipment for the various 
departments; so that we may, in the near future, apply to the 
New England Association of Schools and Colleges for ac- 
creditation. The direction we take in our course offerings 
depends upon what the students have studied at the two 
feeder schools, Wilton and Lyndeborough. Progress is con- 
tinuously being made in providing these students with a 
common experience, so that we may provide a continuum in 
the subject areas. 

Mr. Ralph Dwire is the Director of the Adult Education 

53 



Classes, which continues to be very popular especially in the 
area of Industrial Arts. It is our hope that more people will 
take part in these classes each year. 

Not to be repetitive, we should give serious thought in 
planning for our own Athletic Field. There may come a time 
when we will have to make other arrangements and it could 
prove very costly. 

It became necessary to rebuild and resurface about 75 
feet of the lower part of the drive leading to the school. The 
Wilton Highway Department received the low bid to rebuild 
this portion of the drive; and the Hot-Topping was awarded 
to another concern, who worked along with the Highway 
Department to complete this project. 

Consideration should be given in continuing the Hot- 
Topping, in order to maintain the entire drive and parking 
lot. 

Our school was thoroughly cleaned by the custodial 
staff during the summer recess; the lights, windows, walls, 
and furniture were washed and all floors were stripped of old 
wax and polished. 

We started our preventive maintenance program bv 
painting a few of the classrooms and taking care of necessary 
repairs. Under this type of program, we will continue to 
paint a few classrooms every year, keeping our maintenance 
portion of the school budget somewhat constant. 

I would be remiss if I did not call your attention to the 
new storage building that was erected by the boys in the In- 
dustrial Arts Department under the direction of Mr. Ralph 
Dwire. This building not only provided the necessary storage 
space that was essential, but gave the boys practical ex- 
perience. 

As I conclude this report, I wish to thank the people of 
Wilton and Lyndeborough for the support they have given 
in financing the needs of the Cooperative District Junior- 
Senior High School, and to the School Board, Staff, Parents, 
and the Wilton Highway Department for their continued 
support and cooperation.
